We’ve Taken Down the Forward Paywall: An Open Letter to Our ReadersRead Now

Attention All Vulnerable Dems, Debbie Wasserman Schultz Has Your Back

The Democrats already putting the GOP on notice that they’re not taking anything for granted in 2008: Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida will head the campaign to protect the party’s vulnerable members in the next elections, according to this press release sent out yesterday by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

Wasserman is chairing the DCCC’s Frontline program, which helps members with fundrasising, recruitment and strategy. Twenty-nine legislators are on the list, including Jewish freshmen Gabrielle Giffords, Paul Hodes, John Yarmuth, Steve Kagen and Ron Klein.

Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland is chairing the DCCC this time around, and promises a more laid-back approach than outgoing chair Rep. Rahm Emanuel.
